About the Program
The Tree Trust Young Adult Conservation Corps (YACC) hires young adults for paid job training positions to help improve the environment and the community by maintaining green spaces and making other environmental improvements, such as property maintenance and landscape construction work. This work also helps these young people build transferable job skills to help them reach their future goals. When they graduate from the program, they leave a lasting impression on the local landscape and take with them skills they need to be successful in the workplace and in life.
Positions are available for 18-24 year olds. Program participants work 28 hours per week for 12 weeks and the beginning pay rate is $9.65 per hour with immediate potential to earn weekly incentives. The work day is Tuesday-Friday, 8am-3pm. A unique part of this program includes specialized follow-up services available to participants after leaving YACC. Individualized case management services encourage young adults to follow their career passion and we are able to offer credentialing opportunities, application fees for higher education, books, and assistance with job placement.
